Welcome to the Kingston Regional Canadian Improv Games Program!
Established in 1989, the Kingston program is part of a national network of regional teams that join the Canadian Improv Games through their local high school. During the school year, students gain access to a number of exciting and unique programs that encourage exploring the art of improv, learning life skills like Positivity, Communication, Leadership, Commitment and Teamwork, making new friends and having fun.
For more information, to register your high school in our 2018 program or to get involved as a volunteer, player or coach, please contact Regional Director’s Jacob Bonafiglia + Quinn Bonafiglia.
Jacob Bonafiglia + Quinn Bonafiglia
Jacob and Quinn Bonafiglia joined the Canadian Improv Games as players in high school with the Grimsby Improv Team; a small town that’s part of the Tri-City Regional Program. After moving to Kingston to attend university, Jacob and Quinn, or JayQuinn (their combined childhood nickname) began volunteering with CIG Kingston, eventually becoming Regional Directors.
Fun fact: Jacob and Quinn are the only identical twin brothers to serve as co-regional directors in the history of the CIG…what are the chances!! JayQuinn absolutely love being the Kingston Regional Directors and encourage all CIG-ers currently living in Kingston to join our incredible volunteer team! Outside of the CIG, Jacob and Quinn are both currently completing Master’s degrees and hope to eventually pursue careers in research.
